The Washington, D.C. metro area’s summer heat puts extra demands on your car. Drivers should follow proper automotive maintenance to be sure their vehicles will perform safely and dependably.
April is National Car Care Month! Here is a check-list of driving and maintenance tips to ensure your vehicle is ready for spring.
Proper maintenance will help owners avoid costly repairs later; we strongly recommend following your vehicle’s maintenance schedule.
Bringing a vehicle to a complete halt takes time. Factors such as weather and road conditions, along with the condition of the tires greatly affect the actual stopping distance.
Consider filling tires with pure nitrogen this winter. Pure nitrogen, a more popular option to fill tires, maintains tire pressure three to four times longer than air.
Whether you are commuting for work or transporting the kids to and from school and after-school activities, you want to be sure your vehicle is mechanically-sound now that colder temperatures arrived.
Your vehicle’s dashboard provides you with important details about the status of your vehicle and notifies you to potential mechanical problems. Pay immediate attention should a light illuminate.
Checking the vehicle battery should be included as part of the routine vehicle maintenance.
While driver’s education courses teach many teens important skills in vehicle control and the rules of the road, valuable information may not be addressed.
Consumers are saving money anyway they can these days, but buying new replacement tires can be unexpected and costly. Vehicle owners should not purchase used tires.
